The Academy apologises to actress after 50 years
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has formally apologised to Sacheen Littlefeather for the mistreatment she received at the 1973 Awards Ceremony
Littlefeather refused to accept the Award for Best Actor on behalf of Marlon Brando, for his role in “The Godfather”, and in her speech, received a mixture of boos and cheers.
During the 60-second speech, Littlefeather spoke about the rights of Native Americans, whilst wearing Native American attire on stage.
Littlefeather will appear at a ceremony next month, and receive an in-person apology from the Academy, as well as discuss the future of Indigenous representation on screen.
Ed Sheeran admits he “didn’t want to live anymore” after death of friends
The 32-year-old has been dealing with depression in the past, and felt the feelings resurface last year
Ed Sheeran has opened up during a new interview with Rolling Stone.
The hugely-popular singer-songwriter says he “didn’t want to live any more” after the deaths of his friends SBTV founder Jamal Edwards and cricketer Shane Warne.
Edwards gave Sheeran his first big break and died suddenly from a heart attack in after taking cocaine and drinking alcohol.
Sheeran believes the tragedy convinced him to kick a drug habit he himself had developed in his 20s.
Sheeran says he has been dealing with depression “throughout [his] life” and felt the feelings resurface last year.
A parent to two young girls, Sheeran was worried his thoughts were “selfish” and as a father he “felt really embarrassed about it”.
The 32-year-old credits his wife with encouraging him to seek help.
“The help isn’t a button that is pressed, where you’re automatically OK. It is something that will always be there and just has to be managed.”
‘Winnie The Pooh’ horror film to not be shown in Hong Kong or Macau
Many believe it relates to a string of protests against Xi Jinping
The new ‘Winnie the Pooh’ horror film has officially hit cinemas – but if you live in Hong Kong or Macau, sorry, unfortunately you won’t get a chance to see it.
Cinemas in these regions have refused to show the movie and, while the exact reason remains unclear, many believe it relates to a string of protests against Xi Jinping.
References to the original, family-friendly version of Winnie the Pooh have been used to protest against the Chinese president in recent years.
Censors in China have since clamped down on references to AA Milne’s character, and the 2018 Christopher Robin film was banned in the country.
Hong Kong authorities have denied the film had been censored, but the director told Reuters: “The cinemas agreed to show it, then all independently came to the same decision overnight. It [isn’t] a coincidence.”
The film has been shown in over 4,000 cinemas worldwide.
But perhaps it’s for the best it was banned in Hong Kong and Macau – the horror flick has received a score of just four per cent on film rating site Rotten Tomatoes.
It depicts Pooh bear, known for being kind and honest, as a vengeful axe wielding half-man, half-bear.
Three men plead guilty to rapper XXXTentacion death
The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018
The three men accused of killing 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion during a 2018 ambush robbery have been found guilty.
A Florida jury convicted Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome on Monday after deliberating for more than a week.
All three were charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of the controversial rapper.
Another man, Robert Allen, pleaded guilty last year to second-degree murder.
The three face a possible sentence of life behind bars.
The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018 while visiting a motorcycle shop.
He was leaving when he was approached by two armed masked men who “demanded property” from him.
At least one of the men shot him during a 45-second struggle and the suspects then grabbed a bag full of $50,000 in cash that the rapper had just withdrawn.
